Please don't Buy it. It is a Fake Product !!!
Recently I have purchased this product from ADZ1 and had the worst experience ever. Everything went very well, including delivery which was pretty fast. But once I put my hands on the product the frustrations started. Not only the product IS NOT ORIGINAL but lots of other items were suspicious as well, such as:
The software is not from Apple. Rather, it is a almost identical replica of the iOS software. For dummy users, it is easy to be fooled since the screen, commands and way to operate is the same. Luckily enough I work with IT (Software Development) and I could testify that the O.S running on the phone was a fake one with jailbreak. Even the option to reset all the settings to the factory wasn’t present. Rather, the user has a choice to access the command line to perform administrative tasks. Not in this world that this would be Apple software.
The language came all in Chinese, which indicates that either the phone came from there or has been used before - since newly iPhones gives you the ability to set up the phone when first started. As soon a turn the phone on I was presented with the pos-configured software already in Chinese.
The phone also didn’t identified my provider. The seller says that the phone is unlocked (reason why he/she asks for a few bucks extra in the price) but it wasn’t able to detect my AT&T card. Strangely enough, once I inserted my AT&T card the phone “automagically” changed the language from Chinese to English, although no reception.
The phone was touched. Instead of the plastic that covers up the entire box in case of originals, the box sent to be was missing the plastic. Not only this is unethical but proves that the product is not original.
Inside the box I could check that all items supposed to come with the phone were there. However, I noticed that the charger plug had scratches all over the plug which was a clear indication that someone deliberately created that box with items from different phones. Even the ear plugs was not properly wrapped in the box.
I returned the product and less than one week I could have my money back since Amazon issued me an refund. Therefore not a complete waste of money. The only damage was in my experience buying an expensive product from Amazon, that allowed a seller like ADZ1 to be able to offer its fake products. Although I am pretty sure that Amazon cannot control this (and thus is not Amazon’s fault) maybe this experience could be used to testify that ADZ1 is not reliable.
Thanks Amazon for the refund. You guys made my experience less painful!
